Great news for Singaporeans who have not used or finished using their SingapoRediscover Vouchers (SRV). The Singapore Tourism Board has recently announced that the SRV can be used at eligible attractions, hotel and tour experiences all the way till 31 March 2022, as long as the experiences are booked by 31 Dec 2021.
The extension is timely considering we’re approaching year end with school holidays and the festive season. Many Singaporeans were also unable to use their SRVs due to reduced group sizes and capacity limits at attractions.
As of 21 October, over 1.25 million Singaporeans have used their SRV at least once. Collectively spending $256 million in vouchers out of the $320 million in credits that was set aside. With around $64 million SRV credits left, here are 20 ways to rediscover Singapore and support the tourism sector.
